The Aviva Mini Rugby Festivals return this weekend with the first big day hosted by Bangor RFC on Sunday. Hundreds of U10 and U12 boys and girls will have their first taste of a major mini rugby festival as teams from all over Ulster gather in Upritchard Park for what promises to be a fun filled day of rugby.
Speaking about the return of the Aviva Minis Festivals, IRFU Age Grade Manager Eoin Hogan said, “Our partnership with Aviva for the Minis Festivals is one of the highlights of the rugby calendar for so many young players all over Ireland. Thousands of boys and girls are involved in mini rugby every week and the festivals are wonderful chance to bring them together for a family day out that celebrates all the fun of the game. We’re really looking forward to the festivals in Bangor, Old Crescent, Kilkenny and Westport over the coming weeks and in the second half of the season we’ll have our Girls Minis Festival and the National Festival in Aviva Stadium.”
Bangor hosted the Ulster festival last season and they welcomed teams from all over the Province for the first time in two years. Take a look back at the action from the day.
